Proxy Servers and Firefox 33.0

  RISC OS user 22:01 17 Oct 2014

I have two PC's one a desktop running Windows 7 and a Laptop with Windows 8.1 both have Firefox 33.0 installed. The Desktop keeps giving the following message "The proxy server is refusing connections. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct. Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. " This started to occur about 2 weeks ago and today I updated Firefox to 33.0 and it is still giving the same error message. I had a similar problem some time ago and it just seemed to go away! The Internet Option shows that the proxy settings on both PC's are "use System Proxy settings" and if I just re-click that option and click ok then Firefox behaves as normal. I have ZoneAlarm Free on both machines. I am not aware that I have changed anything on the Desktop machine. Can anyone help me please? I am the Administrator for both machines and my LAN and WiFi.
